symbian and nokia are and will always be the best in mobile technology. nokia is occupied by smart people and what they do is very well designed (not like samsung or htc which continuously release phones in order to hit the market-that is idiotic, many models are actuly identical in specs)
and all of you who believe that symbian is horrible you are probably ignorants and tools of those fansy OS makers. a good OS is not a colorful and cute one! symbian is the most applicable OS, has the biggest operation possibilities and has the best variety of support and software.
and symbian^3 will make it cute (as you like) too!!!
and snapdragon will make it horribly fast too!!!
so which is a real competitor anyway??? just itself
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2010N900 with that CPU is good enough, but the keyboard is annoying! Wot makes you think that, i... moreThe people that use the N900 for what it was intended for like having the keyboard. BTW its "What" not "wot" and "Yet" not "jet"
N900 with that CPU is good enough, but the keyboard is annoying!
Wot makes you think that, if you get a sms message walking down the street, and you have to replay to your friend maybe only the word "yes" or "not jet" on public and flipping out the keyboard "clap-clap" noisy like a weapon, and your neighbors see you with it..., wot do you really expect from them to say to your friends, "Oh sh*t he is running with Laptop on city, is he mad-Einstein-computerist or wot", is that disgusting or wot!
And Nokia company don't won't to come out with n900 without keyboard hardware, it's because they know, they think they give to consumers to much...?!
i truly hope that the snapdragon cpu will provide the power to nokias symbian broplems. like web browser crashing and long loading times.
i hand have more than 5 nikias symbian devises and all of them had crashing browsers and other issues....or is it just the symbian sofware?
i tested Opera but same result.
Due for a Symbian device this year? Hopefully it is also due to a Maemo device as well. If they put an A8 in the N920 I will be pissed. If that's the case, the only improvement* would be the capacitive screen... Which really isn't too much of a necessity due to the N900's physical keyboard. Give me a Maemo device basically similar spec to the N900, though, and add on capacitive and the snapdragon and I'd buy one the day it's released. Oh... who am I kidding... I'll likely buy it the day its released anyway :(
but in the recent years nokia's mobile phone either badly designer or boring. like oh-been-there-done-that-no-more design. with always square navigational keypad, etc etc.
I am a big time SE Fan who thinks Nokia makes the most boring UI and phones on the face of this planet aimed for the masses and not for the geek class and is overrated.
But, I have to agree that Nokia brings the best of services and technology to its users. 16Mill Color, Expandable Memo of MicroSD and everything to entice its users. And now Snapdragon.
Nokia will always rule, despite efforts form Samsung, SE and Moto.
itoru, 19 Feb 2010symbian is the most powerfull OS ever!no it isn't!!! lol
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2010nokia and symbians time is up, its only going down from here, it was a nice run though htc ... moreNokia will never die out they will live forever after just obtaining navtec they have a unique opportunity with free sat nav for all there users i will all ways be a nokia boy lol
Nokia's got some insane monsters somewhere in the owen, they're probably lacking cause of Symbian 3
who knows what the reason is, maybe Nokia was too lazy with Symbian 1 and thought it would ease its way to 2 than 3, but the market must have changed that they were forced to throw 3 out and forget about 2.
The Hardware parts probably 10% of their problem, the softwares screwing nokia over, they probably hate their own symbian by now
Symbian is grate, but Nokia is not doing well this days, i think they have lost control, and business is not going as they planed, and they are firing hundreds of workers every few month, and instead coming out with parallel device to n900 without keyboard or x6 with keyboard, they are claiming illusive heroic tech that they don't have it at all, because if they have, you know how they advertise it's pictures and animations, but sens they don't have something to give to costumers as a device, they give open source and ovi maps to keep costumers not moving away till nokia comes out with something new, so nokia this Q1 really sucks!
By the way fun-girls, the phone is not PC even it does lot more than pc can do.
A good phone is not about running for MHz or MP's, but the way you fell comfortable with it because the way phone and it's software serves you when ewer you are in need for it, and one OS from them is Symbian60 lot of software for free and functional and even you can import from other platforms like Java, PyPhone, flash and throe emulator MSDOS or Win95,98, and no way Stew-aple, Microsoft or Google can interfere you to tell you wot you can do or not to do on your phone, so you are totaly free and multitasking OS and multi platform on your symbian device.
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2010nokia and symbians time is up, its only going down from here, it was a nice run though htc ... moreSymbian has been hit hard due to the latest surge of smartphones and because of its aging and once closed source OS. Now with Symbian 3 OS just around the corner, that is now open source and has a revamped UI, I believe it thrive once again. Being open source will allow almost anyone able to make a program and more developers and phone companies will contribute to the OS as a whole. Just you wait.
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2010 Is it really HTC you all love so much or just Android? i mean HTC have been making phones fo... moreActually HTC makes great SMARTphones for years (limited by win mo os :-). And to be honest HTC never produced non-SMARTphones.
Until recently though they played on different smartphone markets.. Now game is changed. HTC goes to smart mass market with android and Nokia wants more power for possibly new generation of E or S series. which compete with HTC.
Going to be intersting. :-)
